Endo peptidyl epoxides, in which the central epoxidic moiety replaces the scissile amide bond of a P(3)-P(3)' peptide, were designed as cysteine proteases inhibitors. The additional P'-S' interactions, relative to those of an exo peptidyl epoxide of the same P(3)-P(1) sequence, significantly improved affinity to the enzymes papain and cathepsin B, but also(More)
A transition-state analogue inhibitor that covalently reversibly binds to an enzyme formally consists of two parts: the chemical site, CS and the recognition site, RS. We have experimentally and theoretically demonstrated that the trend of binding affinity in a series of isoselective inhibitors (with identical RS and different CS fragments) depends mainly(More)
